The year is 2030, and kids everywhere rejoice because they no longer have to do chores! Instead, they can build robots that do chores for them. There’s just one hitch: unless your students understand Area and Perimeter, the robots won’t work!
In this fun activity, each student will create a different robot according to the Area and Perimeter specs on the card given to them. The result? A classroom full of paper robots ready to take on all of those chores! Well, probably only one chore: being part of a cute bulletin board display. (Unfortunately, because it’s not 2030 yet, there’s only so much a paper robot can do.)
This unit was designed with differentiation in mind, because each card has either Area measurements, Perimeter measurements, or both. You can choose the best card for each student. (If you need to give students the same card, don’t worry. They can still end up with different robots.)
You can also differentiate for students who are new to the skill, or ready for a challenge. Students who are new can count the squares and use regular shapes. Students who are ready for a challenge can use rulers to create irregular shapes.
